and luminous, his diction pure and
faultless, his logic sound and cont-
vincing, and his voice soft, resonant
and silvery. He gained the title it
that early day of the "silver tongued
orator."
In the fearful after events Mr.
Bloxham held and maintained a con-
spicuous place in public affairs ant
was looked up to as a safe counsellor
and leader.
In 1870 he ran for the office if
Lieutenant-Governor (which office
had been declared vacant.) Though
counted out by the State Returning
Board Mr. Bloxham carried the cawe
to the courts and won a significant
victory which paved the way for the
success of the reform forces which i
occurred later.
He was twice elected Governor,
once Comptroller, was Secretary of
State under Governor Drew, was'
appointed by President Cleveland
Minister to Bolivia, and for four
years was United States Surveyoi-
General for Florida.
In later life Mr. Bloxham con-
tinued a fine campaign orator. (Flor-
ida has not yet produced his su-
perior.) His polished manners have
grown upon him until he is recog-
nized as the perfect Chesterfield, and
as a politician he has been as mas-
terful in Florida as Halifax was in
England, and his memory and his
influence will long endure.-Ocala

When Comptroller W. II. Rey-

he found one of Morris' handsome

nice little note signed by the em-

appreciation of his uniform courtesy
and kindiiess to them and wishing
for him many happy new years.
The matter had been kept so quiet
that no intimation of it had reached

CHAPTER XXII.
I was very unhappy. Three days
passed, and I saw neither Phyllis nor
Gretchen. The city was still talking
about the dramatic ending of Prince
Ernst's engagement to the Princess
Hildegarde. Twice I had called at he
Holhenphalian residence to pay my re-
spects. Once I was told that their
highnesses were at the palace. The sec0
ond time I was informed that their
highnesses were indisposed.' I became
gloomy and disheartened. I could not
understand. Gretchen had not even
thanked me for my efforts in saving
her the unhappiness of marrying the
prince. And Phyllis. she who had call-
ed me "Jack." she whom I had watch-
ed grow from girlhood to womanhood.
she. too. had forsaken me. I do not
know what would have become of me
but for Pembroke's cheerfulness.
Monday night I was sitting before
the grate reading for the hundredth
time Gretchen's only letter. Pembroke
was buried behind the covers of a mag-
azine. Suddenly : yellow flame leaped
from a pine log. and in it I seemed to
read all. Gretchen was proud and jeal-
ous. She believed that I loved Phyllis
and had made her a princess because I
loved her. It was the first time I had
laughed in many an hour. Pembroke
looked over Iris magazine.
"That sounds good. What caused it?"
"A story." I answered. "Some day I
shall tell you all about it. If you will
excuse me. cousin mine. I'll make a
call on her serene highness the Prin-
cess Ilildegarde."
Just then the door opened and Pem-
broke's valet came in. lie handed a
card to me, and 1 read upon it, "Count
von Walden." 1 cast it into Pembroke's
lap.
"That's the man. He is the insep-
arable of the Prince of Wortumborg."
Then to the valet. "Show him up."
The count gravely passed over the
threshold.
"Good evening." he said, with a look
of inquiry at Pembroke.
"This gentleman." said I as I intro-
duced him, "will second me in the af-
fair tomorrow morning. I suppose you
have come to make the final arrange-
umeuts?"
"Pardon me," began Pembroke, "but
I do not understand"-
"Oh, I forgot! You are," I respond-
ed, "to be my second in a"duel tomor-
row morning. Should anything hap-

And then another eight hours dragged

'* 5 5 5 5
The king was dressed in a military
blouse, 'and. save for the small cross
suspended from his neck by a chain of
gold, there was nothing about him to
distinguish his rank. He strode back
and forth, sometimes going the whole
length of the white room. The chancel-
lor sat at a long mahogany table, and
the prince and Mr. Wentworth were
seated at either side of him. The Inn-
keeper stood before the chancellor at
the opposite side of the table. His face
Itight have been cut from granite, It
was so set and impassive. I leaned oves
the back of a chair In the rear of the
room. The king came close to me once
and fixed his keen blue eyes on mine.
"Was this the fellow, prince," he
asked. "who caused you all the trouble
and anxiety ?"
I felt uicasy. My experience with
kings was not large.
"No, your majesty." answered the
prince. "The gentleman to whom you
refer has departed the scene." The
prince caught the fire in my eye and
laughed softly.
"Ah." said the king carelessly, "it is
a strange story. Proceed." with a nod
to the chancellor.
"What is your name?" the chancellor
asked, directing his glance at the inn-
keeper.
The innkeeper gazed at the king for
a space. The prince was watching him
with a mocking smile. %
"Hermann Breunner, your ezcellen-
cy."
The king stood still. He had forgot-

liver this note to you, which her serene
highness directed me to do should you
call."
My hands shook as I accepted the
missive, and the lights began to waver.
I passed out into the cold air. Gone?
And why? I walked back to the rooms
in feverish haste. Pembroke was still
at his reading.

WOMAN

15 LAW A DELIATE

In good condition she is sweet and lovable,
and sings life's song on a joyful harmonious
string. Out of order or unstrung, there is
discordance and unhappiness. Just as there
is one key note to all music so there is one key
note to health. A woman might as well try
to fly without wings as to feel well and look
well while the organs that make her a woman
are weak or diseased. She must be healthy
Inside or she can't be hea:hy outside. There ,
are thousands of women suffering silently all
over the country. Mi:s.tken modesty urges
their silence. Whi!e there is no h.ng more
admirable than a modest woman, health is
of the first importance. Every other con-

"If our paths cross again, one of us

"Any time." said I. watching Gret-

Gretchen made as though to speak,

J03 C. TUM B, Utor and Proprietor.

T~lE NMWcNT~


The new century was ushered in
Monday night with -great ceremony
in many instances. As if in condem-
nation of such proceedings, the
Heavens frowned, and the day
dawned dark and gloomy, torrents
of rain coming down at frequent in-
tervals. May we not hope, however,
that in this instance, a "bad begin-
ning" will -make "a good ending,"
and .hat the "bad begin ng',wiJL
not extend too far into the century.
The beginning of a new century,
through unnoticed by a great many of
us e cpt in light, half jesting con-
versation, is of more than passing
importance. It marks an epoch in
the history-not only of a nation,
but f mankind, wherever even the
daw. of civilization has ; appeared.
If t4 twentieth shall prove as fruit-
ful in the progress of the world as
the nineteenth century has been,
theri is no comprehending (at this
time' where we" will be, even at the
lirst quarter-mile post.
We may with certainty expect, how-
evert that within that short time our
own 'country-aye, our own section
of the State-will be honey-combed
with railroads, the greatest developers
of the present age, and free mail de-
livery systems established through-
out the country districts, and per-
baps telephones put into almost every
farmhouse. With thesemeans of
trasportation and quick communi-
cation, may we not indeed look for a
new era?

HANNA'S AFFRONTERY.
In ihe Senate of the United States,
on the 13th inst. that body had under
discussion what is now pretty gener-
_ally known as the "Ship subsidy
steal". The grand mogul of the
Republican party, Mark Hanna, had
the floor, and it seems that under the
taunts of Senators Bacon of Georgia,
and that world-renowned debator,.
Senator Vest, the subject had waxed


somewhat warm. In closing his re-
,msrkt, Senator Hanna made use of
the following language:
."-* "If you bring it'4own to a ques"
lion of dollars and cents as weighing
against the higher considerations,
wheitthose conditions come upon us
as a iquence of war, and we are
aske4 what would we not give had
we a-nerchant marine, being a neu.
tral pFwer, to go on with the export
of our products and not suffer the
consequences of the war, would we
stop to consider the whole amount
of the subsidy, $9,000,000, multiplied
by thb twenty years of the exist-
ence of this contract, as a price to
be ]jid in cash to remove such con-
'ditiotis as would bring ruin upon
us for at least a while?
"Ob, no, Mr. President, in making
my appeal to the American people
for this great industry, I want to put
it upon higher grounds than that of
dollars and cents. I want to put it
upon lhe broad ground of a connect-
ing li.k between the producer and
conuiwer, as an adjunct to our
further growth and prosperity, which
it is written must continue in the na-
ture (of things because of the condi-
tions which control us and our future
-conditions which rise above the
speculative question whether one
man will get a little more benefit than
another, conditions which appeal
even -to our benevolence in the re-
sponsibilities that we owe to the
working people of this country.
"As to thu popularity or the un-
popularity of this measure, I stand
here today in the presence of the
whole'American people and claim
that this kind of legislation is in-
spired ly the best sentiment .and the
wisest experience of those best qual-
ified tq judge its merits. I am stand-
ing hire as the exponent of that
principle, and I claim for every line
in the bill thatit is in the interest of
the whole people of the United
States, and particularly of those who
must look to higher and more expit-
eMced authority to conduct the
public affairs of our government in
L..- .,me TLTnon that-b hasia


show the net profits that would come
to the American line of steamersas a
result of this subsidy. I believe he
placed them at $304,000 per annum
per ship."-
Mr. Clay-"I desire to state that
I did not say the net profits to those
ships would be $304,000 a year. I
said that the gross subsidy would be
$304,000 a year,"
Mr. Vest-"I understand the Sen-
ator from Ohio to challenge the cor-
rectness of the estimate made by the
Senator from Georgia."
Mr. Hanna-"I did."
Mr. Vest-"I wish to know what
the Senator thinks the American In-
ternational Company, with the ships
they now have a!d the four ships
they are* building abroad, which, of
course, would come in for a portion of
the subsidy-50 per cent. of it-
would receive per year for the twenty
years, and how much in the aggregate
for the whole twenty years."
Mr. Ilanna-"I took a quotation,
if I quoted it correctly, from the Sen-
ator from Georgia. He designated
the steamer St. Louis, and said it
would receive $304,000. Am I
rigbt."
Mr. Clay--"Three hundred and
four thousand two hundred and
ninety dollars.
Mr. Hanna-"And I made inquiry
as to how he obtained those figures:
A ship, as I said, only earns the sub-
sidy while she is sailing, and eleven
trips is the maximum, in my judg-
ment, that can be obtained by
steamers of. that class, taking into
account all the things which they
have to meet in the course of a year,
and the calculation that I have made
upon the basis of eleven trips shows
that such a steamer could not earn
within twenty. or twenty five thou-
sand dollars of as much as the Sena-
tor from Geo gia sated."
Mr. Clay--"I desire to call the
Senator's attention to the hearings
before the Committee on Commerce,
page 75, where there is a table pre-
pared by Mr. Clyde himself, who
testified before the committee in
favor of this measure. lie is a gen-
tleman who knows all about ships.
We all know that. He puts the
exact amount at $304,290. That
will be found on page 75 of the
hearing before the Committee on
Commerce."
Mr. Hanna--"I am not using Mr.
Clyde's figures. I a using my
own."
Mr. *Vest-"If the Senator has not
already examined upon this point,
in their report of the Commissioner
of Navigation, Mr. Chamberlain, for
1900, he will find that he states the
amount earned during the year by
the St. Paul at $304,290."
Mr. Ilanna-"Do I undei stand the
Senator to say havingg earned' or
'that it would probably earn?'"
Mr. Vest-"That they had re-
ceived from the subsidy."
Mr. Hllanna-"Under the new bill?"
Mr. Vest-"Under the new bill.
That is Mr. Chamberlain's own
statement, and he is the most fav-
orable witness who can. be found in
this country."
Mr. Hanna-"Well, Mr. Presi-
dent, the way of arriving at those
figures either by Mr. Clyde or Mr.
Chamberlain or myself- "
Mr. Clay-"I desire to ask the
Senator is it not true that the Com-
missioner of Navigation in his report
corresponds with the statement made


by Mr. Clyde before the committee in
regard to the amount to be received
by this bill?"
Mr. lHanna-"I am not discussing
that or disputing it. I am giving you
the figures that I have made as a re-
result of my calculalions."
If there had been good reasons
for putting the "appeal" upon &-higher
grounds than dollars and cents," does
Sany one suppose the astute Senator
from Ohio would have dodged the
actual question of cost so long and
adroitly, with two such men as&
Clay and Vest after him?
Not much. IHe would not only have
admitted it, but would have been
willing to foot up the twentieth year
price per ship-six million, eighty-
four thousand and eight hundred
dollars-and passed on to the right-
ous appeal. It is truly wonderful
how sanctimonious these govern-
ment robbers, who steal by the mil-
Ions, become after an election such
as the last one.
HANDSOME HOUDAY EDITIONS.
Besides the Gainvesville Sun's
B holiday edition, which has already
' been noticed in these columns, we


Most Florida Democrats will, we
believe, rejoice at the success of
Senator Quay in organizing both
branches of the Pennsylvania Legis-
lature and securing the unanimous
nomination of the Republican party
for his old place in the United States
Senate. Mr. Quay is frequently re-
ferred to as the "third Senator from
Florida," and a pretty good Florida
representative he makes, too.
According to a recent Associated
Press dispatch, the government of
the United States has offered Den-
mark $3,240,000 for the Danish West
Indies. These little islands, says the
Times-Union and Citizen, have an

EDITOR'S ANNOUNCEMENT.
That the subject of education, in
its broad sense, is the most impor-
tant that has ever received the atten-
tion of thoughtful minds, will hardly
be questioned. It has been well said,
that the wealth of a state consists in
the virtue of its citizens. Whether
or not the forces effecting the char-
acter of the young, are resulting mn
their moral elevation, as a whole, is
at least to be questioned. Are the
youpg men of today, as a result of
their home, school, and street train-
ing, an improvement upon their
parent? While some indications
point to a better state of things, there
are many conditions, not existing
fifty years ago, that deserve the earn-
est consideration of the philanthro-
pist. Laxity of home and school
discipline, the increase of Sabbath
desecration, the non-attendance of
our young men at church, the in-
creasing prevalence of certain evil
habits, and the congestion of popu-
lation in our cities, are a few of these
conditions. Parents, preachers, and
teachers, jointly, are directly re-
sponsible in the matter. It has
long been a source of regret to
us, that between these classes
there has not been a closer bond of
sympathy and co-operation.
Realizing the power and influence
of the press, we have asked a num-
ber of the editors of your State pa-
pers for the privilege of conducting
an educational column in their pa-
pers, all articles to appear simulta-
neously in each. Some of the edi-
tors applied to have been exceed-
ingly cautious, one of them commit-
ting himself no farther than agreeing
to publish the article from our con-
tributor for seven cents a line, p ay-
able in advance! A few kindly
promised us space when the election
should be over, and six granted our
request at once, several of them add-
ing their hearty endorsement of the
plan,

leading educators to our request for

kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble-causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in ptimping thick, kidney-
poisoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild

Pointed Paragrapls.
The following paragraphs are se-
lected from Reports of Class Room
Talks by Prof. T. F. McBeath at the
Gainesville Normal of 1892, his irst
work in this State:
All imitation is slavery.
A school without songs is a school
without memories.
Honesty does not keep ignorace
from blundering.
No one can be ar true tea0 er
without being a Christian.
It is the business of education to
make men Christlike.
Intellectual qualifications are, of
little consequence compared with
moral qualifications.
Cultivate your voice; I never k+ew
a kind, unselfish man with a harsh
voice.
Every man is in duty bound to
take the work that will enable him
to do more for God and humanity~
Do good and happiness will co ne
to you, as sure as sunlight co es
from the sun.
Freedom is the basis of all intel-
lectual activity.
The less we know the more frely
we talk.
If we would'be. pioneers we must
be willing to go alone.
If we stop and stand still we shall
be run over by the great army of
progress.
Teachers present the ideas wl ich
are to predominate in the next gen-
e ration.
True happiness comeA from doing
good; to look directly for it isi to
miss it.
Your labor will be rewarded. Down.
the ages the waves of good influence
will reach on and on till they beat
on the shores of eternity.

The manufacturers of Royal

Baking Powder have always declined'

to produce a cheap baking powder

at the sacrifice of quality.

The Royal is made from the

mbst highly refined and wholesome

ingredients, and is the embodiment

of all the excellence possible to be

attained in the highest class baking

powder.

Royal Baking Powder costs only


fair price, and is


cheaper


at its


-ice than any similar article.


Samples of mixtures made in imitation of baking
powders, but containing alum, are frequently dis-
tributed from door to door, or given away in
grocery stores. Such mixtures are dangerous
to use. in food, and in many cities their sale is
prohibited by law. Alum is a corrosive poison, and
all physicians condemn baking powders containing it.

The Legislature should pass a law for-
bidding the selling or the firing of can-
non "firecrackers" in the State. They
are loaded with gun cotton and dyna-
rmite and are exceedingly dangerous for
even the most cautious to handle and an
accident may mean a loes of the fingers
or a hand. They are too unsafe to be
used and as weasaid.hould be prohibited
by statute. *
rerjois who suffer from indigestion
cannot expect to live long, because they
cannot eat the food required to nourish
the body and the products of the un-
digested foods they do eat poison the
blood. It is important to cure indiges-

method of doing this is to use the prep-
aration known as Kodol Dyspepsia Cure.
It digebts what you eat and restores all
the digestive organs to perfect health.

I interrupted him with a menacing
emMture. "I am extremely irritable," I
id. "I should regret to lose control
tC myself in a place like this."
"To be sure!" he said. "This is Eng-
land, where they knock one another
donwn."
"We do not murder on this side of
the channel," I retorted.
."That is unkind. Your friend was a
very good shot," with a significant
'glance at his useless arm. "But for
my arm aid his nerves.-which were
not of the best order, I had not lived to
peak to you tonight." -
"So much the worse for the world."
Maid I. "Your questions?"
"Ah, who was that remarkably beau-
tlful woman under your distinguished
enre Thursday evening?"
"I see that our conversation is to be
of the shortest duration. Who she was
Is none of your business." rudely. I
Unfolded my paper and began reading.
"Perhaps, after all," not the least
'perturbed by my insolence, "it were
best to state on paper what I have to
may. I can readily appreciate that the
encounter is disagreeable. To meet
one who" has made a thing impossible
to you sets the nerves on edge." He
caught up his opera hat, his cane and
gloves. He raised the lapel of his coat
and sniffed at the orchid in the button-
hole.
Some occult force bade me say.
'Why do you wish to know who she
was?"
He sat down again. "I shall be
pleased to explain. That I mistook her
for another who I supposed was on
the other side of the channel was a
natural mistake, as you will agree. Is
It not strange that I should mistake
another to be the woman who is so
soon to be my wife? Is there not
something behind this remarkable, un-
sual likeness? Since when are two
surpassingly beautiful women, born in
different lands, of different parents,
the exact likeness of each other?"
Now, as this was a thing which had
occupied my mind more than once I
immediately put aside the personal af-
fair. That could wait. I threw my
paper on to the table.
"Do you know, sir." said I, "that
thought echoes my own'?'
"Let us for the moment put our-
selves into the background." said the
prince. "What do you know about her
serene highness the Princess Hilde-
garde, her history?'
"Very little. Proceed."
"But tell me what you know."
"I know that her father was driven
to a gambler's grave and that her
mother died of a broken heart and
that the man who caused all this
wishes to break tlie heart of 1he
aughter too."
"Scandal. all scandal," said the
prince. "Who ever heard of a broken
heart outside of a romantic novel? I
ee that the innkeeper has been hold-
lng your ear. Ah, that innkeeper; that
Innkeeper! Certainly some day there
Will come a reckoning."
"Yes, indeed." said I. "Beware of
him."
"It was 2f years ago." said the
prince. ,"It is beyond the recall. P.ut
let me proceed. Not many y3ars ago
there was a prince, a very bad fel-
low."
"Most of them are."
"Hie married a -womnan too good for
him," went on tlhe prince. :1s though
ne had not he:ird.
'*Ano her is :;lo : t to 0o likewise."
"There WaS stome' s.anddal. When

"Another child. The ;'ict that the
prince swore that when children came

to the rumor that the princess had had
one spirited away to escape this
threatened contamination. And one of
the nurses was missing. Whither had
she gone remained a. mystery and Is
still a mystery, for she never has re-
turned. Did she spirit away the other
child, the other girl? I say girl ad-

.! :'.:l I wil l I1ll you a i'romaice which
~l, has inoti y' ieen drawn to its end.
C .'.t.e upoiln ;I 1imie- let mne call it a
,. faii"y slwory." s:Oidl dir:awing down a
. p;al!:: he:tf :is if to read the tale from
tq its Il;l;ale':. "Once I)upon a time in a
V1. counziam." fnir from ours there lived a
Spn-i'::e andl a prinic'ss. The prince was
ih; rather a bad fellow. His faith in his
,l, wife was Inot the best, and he imde a
rt. vov that if ever children came he
,,. would make theli as evil as himself.
)l( Not long after the good fairy brought
ad two children to her godchild. the prin-
1i cess. lRenicmlbring the vow made by
the prince, the good fairy carried away
one of the children, and no one knew
on anything about it save the princess
e and the fairy. When the remaining
le, chilh was 2 % ears old, the princess died.
The: child from then on grew like a
wild flower. The prince did his best to
spoil her, but the good fairy watched
of over her just as carefully as she watch-
ad ed over the child she had hidden away.
ad By and by the wicked prince died. The
ad child reached womanhood. The good
ad fairy went away and left her. Per-
dc haps she now gave her whole attention
to the other." I let the palm leaf slip
back and drew down a fresh one. Phyl-
io lis watching me with Interest. "The
child the fairy left was still a child for
th all her womanhood. Site was willful
h and capricious; she rode, she fenced,
-she hunted; she was as unlike other
up women as could be. At last the king,
who was her guardian, grew weary ot
her caprices. So he commanded that
at- she marry. But what had the fairy
dome with the other child, the twin
sister of this wild princess? Perhaps
in this instance the good fairy died
and. left her work unfinished, to be
taken up and pursued by a convention-
al newspaper reporter. Now this pro
tem. fairy ascertained that the good
fairy, had left the lost princess in the
v care of one of a foreign race. Having


ad with the first diplomatists of thb
world, who has learned to read the
world as another might read a book,
you are surprisingly unadept in the art
of dissimulation."
"That is a very long sentence." said
I in order to gain time enough tc
fathom what she meant. I could not
- So I said. "What do you mean?"
"Your whole face was saying to the
princess. "1 love you!' A glance told
me all. I was glad for your sake that
no other woman saw you at that mo-
ment. But 1 suppose it would not have
mattered to you."
"Not if all the world- had seen tht
look." moodily.
"Poor Jack, you are very unlucky!"
Her.voice was full of pity. "I feel se
sorry for you. it is all so impossible
And she loves you too."
"How do you know?"
"I looked at her while she was look.
Ing at you."
"You have wonderful eyes."
"So I have been told. I wonder whj
she gave you that withered and worm
eaten rose?"
"A whim," I said. staring at the rug
I wondered how she came to surmise
that it was Gretchen's rose? Intuition
perhaps.
"Do you love her well enough." ask-
ed Phyllis. plucking the lace on hei
fan, "to sacrifice all the world for her,
to give up all your own happiness that
she might become happy?"
"She never can be happy without me
-if she loves me as I believe." I ad-
mit that this was a selfish thought te
express.
"Then why is it Impossible. youe
love and hers? If her love for you i2.
as great as you say it is, what is a
king. -a prince or a principality to her?'
"It is 'one of those. It is because
she has given her word. the word of a
princess. What would you do in bei
place?" suddenly.
"I'" l'hyllis leaned back among the
cushiims, her eyes ialf closed and a
smile on her lips. "I iam afraid that if
I loved you I should follow you to the
end of the world. Ilonor is a fine
thing, but in her case it is an empty
word. If she broke this word for you,
who would be wronged? No one. since
the priuinc' covets only. her dowry and
the king desires only his will obeyed,
Perhaps I do not understand what so-
cial obligation means to these people
who are born in purple."
"Perhaps that is it. Phyllis, listen.


Beat Out of an Increase of His Pension
A Mexican war veteran and promi-
nent editor writes: "Seeing the adver-
tisement of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy, I am reminded
that as a soldier in Mexico in '47 and '48
I contracted Mexican diarrhoea and this
remedy has kept me from getting an
increase in my pereion, for on every
renewal a dose of it restores me." It is
unequalled as a quick cure for diarrhlea
and is pleasant and safe to take. For
sale by Wight & Bro. and all medicine
dealers.

Phyllis grew silent. "Forgive me,
Jack!" impulsively. "But ill this iC
scarcely to I:> believed. And then you
say there are no proofs."
"Not in the eyes of the law." I re-
plied. "But nature has written it iu
your facts." I was wondering why
she had not gone into raptures at the
prospect of becoming a princess.
"It is a great honor." she said after


some meditation, "and it is very kind
of you. But I care as little for the
title as I do for this rose." And she
cast away one of Pembroke's roses. It
boded ill for my cousin's cause.
The next person I saw was the chan-
cellor.
"Well?" I interrogated.
"There can be no doubt," he said.
"but"- with an expressive shrug.
"Life would run smoother if it had
fewer butss' and 'ifs' and 'perhapses.'
What you would say," said I, "is that
there are no proofs. Certainly they
must be somewhere."
"But to find them!" cried he.
"I shall make the effort. The pur.
suit is interesting."'
The expression in his eyes told me
that lie had forwned an opinion in re-
gard to my part. "Ah, these journal-
ists!" as he passed on.
Everything seemed so near and yet
so far. Proofs? Where could they be
found if Wentworth had them not!
If only there had been a trinket, a ker-
chief even, with the Hohenphalia cresi
upon It! I shook my fists in despair.
Gretchen was so far away, so far!
I went in search of her. She was still
surrounded by men. The women were
not as friendly toward her as they
might have been. The prince was
standing near. Seeing me approach,
his teeth glehnmed for an instant.
"Ah." said Gretclien. "here is Hlerm
Winthrop, who is to take me in t(
supper!"
It was cleverly done, I thought. Ever,
the prince was of the same mind. U<
appreciated all these phases. As we
left them and passed on toward the
supper room I whispered;
"I love you!"


CHAPTER XX.
When I whispered these words, I ex-
pected a gentle pressure from Gret-
chen's fingers, which rested lightly on
my arm. But there was no sign, and I
grew troubled. The blue green eyes
sparkled, and the white teeth shone
between the red lips. Yet something
wa, lacking.
"Let us go into the conservatory,"
she said. "It was merely a raoe of
mine. I want no supper. I have much
to say to you."
Somehow we selected by mutual ac-
cord a seat among the roses. There
was a small fountain, and the waters
sang in a umurmnurous music. It seem-
ed too early for words, so -we drew
our thoughts from the marble and the
water. As for me. I looked at, but did
not see. the fountain. It was another
scene. There was a, garden in which
the roses grew in beautiful disorder.
There were a man and a woman in the
garden. She was culling roses, while
the man looked on with admiring eyes.

"It is unreal: Imp1possilde! Absurd!"
she cried.
"Let ine 'riM''at tihe words of the

"And does she know-the Princess
Hildegarde? My sister? How strange
the word feels on tny tongue."
"No; she does not know, but present-
ly she wilL"
Then Phyllis asked In an altered
tone. "And what is all this to you that
you thrust this greatness upon me, a
greatness, I assure you, for which I
do not care?"
I regarded her vaguely. I saw a
precipice at my feet. I could not tell
her that in making her a princess I
was making Gretchen free. I could
not confess that my motive was pure-
ly a selfish one.
"It was a duty," said I evasively.
,"And in what way will it concern
the Princess Hiildegarde's affairs-and
yours?' She was rather merciless.
"Why should it concern any affair of
mine?" I asked.
"You love her, and she loves you.
May she not abdicate in my favor?"
"And if she should?" with an accent
of impatience.

much difference as there is between-
what simile shall I use, the possible
and the impossible?"
"Gretchen." I began.
"Gretchen?" The princess laughed
amusedly. "She is flown. I beg you
not to waste a thought on her mem-
ory."
Things were going badly for me. I
did not understand the mood. It
brought to mind the woman poor Hil-
lars had described to me in his rooms
that night in London. I saw that I
was losing something, so I made what
I thought a ihold stroke. I took from
my pocket a withered rose. I turned it
from one hand to the other.
"It appears that when Gretchen gave
me this it was as an emblem of her
love. Still I gave her all my heart."
"If that be the emblem of her love,
herr, throw it aiway. It is not worth
the keeping."
"And Gretchen sent me a letter
once," I went on.
"Ah, what indiscretion:"
"It began with 'I love you' and end-
ed with that sentence. I have worn
the writing away with my kisses."
"How some men waste their ener-
gies!"
'our highness," said I, putting the
rose back into my pocket, "did Gret-
chen ever tell you how she fought :
duel for me because her life was less
to her than mine?"
The Princess Ilildegarde's smile stiff
ened, and her eyes closed for the brief
est instant.
"Ah, shall I ever forget that night!'
said I. "I held her to my heart and
kissed her on the lips. I was supreme
ly happy. Your highness has never
known what a thing of joy it is to kiss
the one you love. It is one of those
things which are denied to people who
have their destinies mapped out by hu
man hands."
The princess opened her faii and hi<
her lips.
"And do you know," I continued
"when Gretchen went away I had i
wonderful dream?"
"A dream? What was it?" The
fan was waving to and fro.
"I dreamed that a princess came In
Gretchen's place, and she threw lie
arms around my neck and kissed me o
her own free will."
"Andh wlh:t did she say, herr?' Cer
tainly the voice was growing more lik
,rieltchen's.
I hesitated. To tell hler what thi
dream princess h:ad said would un
do aill I h.'id thus far accolmplishedi
which was too little.
"It will not interest your highness.
said I.
"Tell me what she said. 1 omnimau

was a falter in her voice.
"She said-she said that she love
me."

"And tliat as she was a princess an

I had to say it.
"That is it; that is it. It cotfld never
